ELMIRA, N.Y. (WETM) — Multiple COVID-19 clinics are occurring in the coming weeks directed at children as they go back to school.

Steuben County Clinic

The Steuben County Public Health Department is partnering with Corning Community College to hold a COVID-19 vaccination clinic at the Health Education Center in Corning on Wednesday, August 4th from 10 AM to 2 PM.

Both Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccines will be offered at this clinic. Registration is preferred at
www.steubencony.org/covid, but walk-ins will also be accepted.

The clinic is open to anyone who lives, works or goes to school in New York State, and is the perfect time for students to get protected for the new school year. Proof of date of birth is needed for anyone seeking vaccination, and those under age 18 need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

“CCC has been a wonderful partner throughout the pandemic, offering opportunities for COVID testing,
help from nursing students, and vaccine clinics,” said Public Health Director, Darlene Smith. “We hope
our eligible population who is getting ready to return to schools of all levels this fall will benefit from this
clinic.”

All clinic attendees must wear appropriate face coverings and will be expected to wait 15-30 minutes
after vaccination for observation. Attendees should wear short sleeves or appropriate clothing for
vaccination.

Residents currently under isolation or quarantine at the time of the clinic due to a positive COVID-19
test result or as a contact to a positive are not eligible to attend the clinic.
